Christopher Jenner introduces new collection in Milan with Kusama-esque installation

Posted by Rob Alderson,

The Milan Salone sometimes gets a bit of criticism for lack of imagination but that’s not a charge that can bevelled at Christopher Jenner’s 2012 showcase The Looking Glass House. The South African-born, London based furniture designer chose this extraordinary Yayoi Kusama-inspired installation as a means of introducing his debut collection Swell. The sound induced matrix of ever changing coloured light was not only beautifully executed, it’s also a good riposte to those who want to criticise what they see as Milan’s overly commercial bent.
